Anyone who turns their life around to live a healthier lifestyle is noteworthy. Thanks to the internet and social media, people are becoming more and more inspired to lose weight and become healthier. People’s stories are insanely inspiring and it’s just impossible to look away.
Typically, when a person loses an extensive amount of weight we tend to focus on their stomach, their waist, even their arms. We usually don’t really realize just how much their face has changed. It’s typically the feature on the body that has changed the most!
Kaylee Bonnett is one example of just how much someone’s face can change after a huge weight loss. Her weight loss success story is extremely inspirational. Kaylee is 24 years old and once weighed 481 pounds!
She told Daily Mail Online, “In 2016, I went to the doctor and the scale there wouldn’t weigh me, and I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic and I had high blood pressure and that’s when I realized I had to do something.”
Bennett was always overweight and was made fun of by her friends in high school when she weighed 300 pounds. She has had difficulty with her weight ever since she could remember. She told Good Housekeeping, “Day to day, life was a constant struggle.”
She continued, saying “From worrying about if I’ll fit in this chair or if the chair will hold me, to trying to look nice and hoping that getting from point A to B doesn’t make me sweat my hair and makeup off, I was constantly on the defense.”
Doctors told Bonnett that if she didn’t lose weight, she would be at serious risk of a stroke or heart attack. Bonnett knew she needed a serious change and decided that surgery was the best option for her.
In 2016, Bonnett underwent gastric bypass and turned to Instagram to follow up on the surgery and her recovery. All I can say is that the results speak for themselves. Other than the obvious changes, the most dramatic change was on her face.
Check out this photo of her looking gorgeous for a summer barbecue. You can really notice a difference in how different her face looks. It’s a remarkable transformation. According to Daily Mail, Bonnett said her battle with weight had to do with coming to terms with her sexual orientation.
Now that she is happily married, she looks forward to her journey of weight loss with her amazing support system. She told Daily Mail, “My wife has been absolutely amazing through this…”
Kaylee continued, saying “…she was 100% behind me having the surgery, she knew that I wouldn’t be with her as long as I should in life if I continued the way I was.” You can follow Bonnett on Instagram @fatgirlfitness_rny to continue watching her weight loss journey. You go, girl!
